Cycle Tour | Asparagus Cycle Tour

East of Münster, the "white gold" of the Münsterland grows on sandy, light soils. The cycle tour is particularly attractive from mid-April to St. John's Day on 24 June. During this time you can enjoy the freshly harvested asparagus directly from the farms, traditionally prepared or as the main actor in unusual creations. The farm shops along the route in particular always offer new regional delicacies based on the popular white spears.

Along the way on the asparagus cycling tour there are also numerous sights to discover: Warendorf with its picturesque historic old town, the Harkotten manor house with its impressive building form, the city of Münster, which captivates guests with its lively city flair, exciting cultural programmes and diverse leisure and shopping facilities, and the small pilgrimage town of Telgte with its pretty town centre.
The 129-kilometre route is a delight for cyclists not only during the asparagus season, but also in summer and autumn, when it is wonderful to cycle through the wide park landscape of the Münsterland.

Journey to Warendorf

Enjoy your first day in the beautiful old town of Warendorf, the horse capital of Germany. It is easy to forget the time while strolling through the picturesque alleys of the town centre. Small restaurants offer regional dishes in every season and, of course, many variations of the much-loved vegetable during asparagus season.

Warendorf - Lengerich (approx. 40 km)

Today's cycle tour takes you north on the "Cycle Route of the Historic Town Centres" out of the town of Warendorf towards Sassenberg-Füchtorf. A number of farmers have been growing asparagus in this small village since 1947. From April onwards, the whole village is on its feet to help with the "Füchtorf Asparagus Spring": numerous gourmet stalls offer a wide variety of asparagus delicacies, and a colourful festival programme attracts many visitors every year. After these moments of enjoyment, the journey continues through the beautiful nature of the northern Münsterland to Lengerich, at the foot of the Teutoburg Forest.

The third day takes you to Münster. On the way there, you will pass particularly beautiful asparagus farms, which also invite you to take a culinary break with various other specialities such as delicious Westphalian ham or fresh organic strawberries. The town centre of Ladbergen with its charming half-timbered houses is also worth a stop. On the edge of the Dortmund-Ems Canal you will discover more asparagus farms before you reach Münster in the evening.

The heart of the city of Münster is the beautiful Prinzipalmarkt with its arcades. From here it is only a few minutes' walk to many sights.

In the evening, the countless restaurants in the city centre or in the trendy harbour district will entice you. On the last day, the cycle tour leads along the idyllic Ems cycle path to Warendorf. Along the way, you can stock up on regional products at one of the neighbouring farms before heading home again.
